Flower Pot Card

This afternoon I was able to attend my TAC unit meeting and had such a great time.  I offered to create a project for everyone to make and this is the card I came up with.  My goals in making this card was to only use solid pastel color cardstock and for it to be as quick and simple as possible.  I used one of the stamps from the Springtime set (T2944) to make the base of the plant and then added a few small paper flowers.  I added bling to the flower pot and I was done.  The 5 strips of cardstock are each 1" x 4".  I'm really happy with how the card turned out.

Bunny Birthday Card

This is one of the birthday cards I made for co-worker almost two weeks ago.  I wasn't able to post it until now since I am finally starting to feel like I have returned to the land of the living.  I've been really sick and can't believe I've lost 9 days.  It all began with an asthma setback which led to bronchitis, pneumonia and a sinus infection.  It's been a tough time and I have never spent that much time in bed.  Now with the help of modern medicine I am beginning to feel the spark of health coming back.   My little Hercules has been watching over me.  He has been by my side every single moment and has been such a comfort.  To bad I can't teach him to cook.  

This card was made using paper scraps and "Bunny Friends" (T3222) stamp set from The Angel Company.  I used Copic markers to color the balloons and bunny. Using the Copic markers was a big step for me since I have perfectionist tendencies and am not that comfortable with the learning curve at times.  I used a glitter pen to add some bling around the edges of the balloon.

Thanks for looking!!!
